Veggie Ramen Kit for 4
This soup was created as a pure representation of a classic shoyu ramen with one big difference: the broth is vegetarian! The idea was to create a pure, clean broth that is enhanced by shoyu tare and a special “vegetarian fat.” It’s served with roasted tomato, enoki mushrooms, and koji tofu. The specially formulated noodles are made with rye flour.
Ivan Orkin fell in love with Japanese cuisine while working as a dishwasher at a sushi bar at age 15. After culinary school and jobs in some of NYC’s top kitchens, he moved to Japan full-time, and at the suggestion of his wife, he opened a ramen shop. This move seemed destined for failure in a country where ramen enjoys a cult-like status. Incredibly, Ivan not only succeeded, but it became one of the top ramen shops in Tokyo. In 2012, he made a triumphant return to New York, and the following year he opened Ivan Ramen there to huge crowds and critical acclaim.
This package serves 4 people and includes everything you need to make 4 bowls of veggie ramen.
